"to slam the people that gave you the start seems very wrong."

Jen, I regret to say that, for a long time, people have been doing that to folk clubs, i.e. the clubs have given them the start, but they then become 'too big' to do the clubs - only concert stages will do. Having said which, some might still be prepared to do the clubs, but they price themselves out of that particular market. Thank God for the likes of John K. and a few others that are still happy to do both.

Sad, isn't it?
